Android Pay VS Apple pay- 3 no bull points about industry rivals
Google is about to take up Apple with its very own payment system this fall and that is why we have listed top 3 things you should know about both these services and how they differ from each other.
1-Android Pay is available for Kitkat & higher Android users but Apple Pay is just for iOS 8 users
In order to run Android Pay on your Android device you will be required to download the official Android Pay app, Android 4.4 (kitkat version)or higher. The API’s required to run Android Pay require you to have at least Android 4.4 and any devices running 4.3 or lower versions will stay out of the league for this amazing product. However, on the other hand most of the old models of iPhone are still able to run iOS8 and they can easily make use of Apple Pay. But the problem is that touch ID is a must to use Apple pay and for that you can only use iPhone 5s or higher versions to enjoy this service.
2-Adroid Pay does not directly used your credit card-but its done in some other way
Apple Pay directly makes use of your credit card information to process tokens sent to merchants however no such scene is available in Android Pay. Both systems are trying to survive in this area and we are still looking forward to see new updates in this niche.
3-Apple Pay is facing no threat from Android Pay
Apple Pay and Android Pay are both designed to meet needs of two different lots of users. While Android Pay is going to host the huge number of Android device owners, it is never going to grab customers of Apple Pay. This is because Apple Pay is specifically designed to meet needs of iOS users and iOS users are in no way going to switch to Android just for the sake of using Android Pay.
